Anything is possible, so yes that would work.. i would not want to give up the coil springs though. also you can convert parts of the f-250 ttb onto the bronco ttb to do a sort of hybrid, i looked into it at one point when i was thinking of upgrading my rear, but ended up beefing up the 9" instead and haven't had a problem since.

why do you want 8 lug? to match another rear?

F250 parts will be so hard to make work tha it's not worth it.

I used Chevy 10 bolt parts and it works great

I want to do what kf4amu did. I have 37 inch MTRs on 16.5 hummer beadlocks. The front looks simple enough, but what about the rear?

What year is your bronco?....most guys just switch the rear axle out to an 8 lug, such as a chevy 14bolt...just depends if you need the sensor or not.

My rear is a 14bolt. I got it from a junkyard for 70 bucks. I did a disk brake conversion so it ended up costing a lot more than it could have, but rear end swaps can be pretty cheap.

Why isn't there an 8-lug swap FAQ as a sticky? It's been asked so many times that there should be one.

This is the one Dustin wrote, and what I used to do my swap, which is what the OP said he wanted to copy.


Consider putting this one as a sticky as well, since this question gets posted once every week or two...How to Fix an Electric Shift BW1356
